how to make bras more comfortable

Every woman needs a variety of bras in her lingerie drawer – including at least a couple super comfortable bras she can wear all day. You want a bra that can fit your everyday style, whether you’re heading into the office or running errands. And, wouldn’t it be great if you could barely tell you were wearing the bra? That feeling is achievable! There are comfy bra styles available for both small and big busts.

Here are the five of the most comfortable bra styles:

Bralettes

A bralette is a feminine, decorative bra without padding or underwire. Bralettes give you that barely-there feel because there’s not much material to them. Although, they usually have additional material under the bust to provide some support. If coverage and support are your goals, bralettes may not be the best fit. The thin material doesn’t provide much coverage for your nipples.

Soft cup (wireless or wire-free) bras

If you want a comfy bra with no underwire, a soft cup bra is for you. Although soft cup bras lack underwire, they still provide a level of support while feeling natural on your body. Some soft cup bras may feature multi-part cups or inner support slings to provide support. Like bralettes, some soft cup bras may provide less coverage for your nipples.

Demi bras

A demi bra is another comfortable bra style. Demi cup bras expose the top half or quarter of your breasts. This can be a comfy bra option when you opt for a demi cup bra without a lot of additional padding.

T-shirt bras

T-shirt bras are seamless and lightly padded. These bras don’t feature much lace or embellishment – if any – creating a smooth look under tees or tight-fitting garments. You can choose from underwired or be wireless options, depending on what feels best to you. This makes a t-shirt bra an effortless, go-to bra and one of the most comfortable bras.

Full cup bras

Full cup bras are one of the most comfortable bra styles for women with larger breasts. With high sides, a long gore, underwire and a high bustline, a full cup bra provides utmost support and coverage.

Finding a comfy bra depends on how much coverage and support you want and need. Unlined and wireless will always be comfy bra styles for every day wear. If you’re a woman with large breasts, a bra style that provides maximum support and coverage will be the most comfortable bra for you.
